COLLINSVILLE, IL. (KTVI) - Big changes in the Collinsville Area Recreation District. The You Paid For It Team has been shining a spotlight on it for more than a year over a spending decision that cost taxpayers hundreds of thousands of dollars.
The Old President of the District is gone. The new President is zeroing right in on the pay of the Executive Director, saying he makes way too much money. Other issues that we've targeted, are on the new Presidents list of concerns, is a $400,000 Land Deal, a theater renovation that will cost millions of dollars the park district doesn't have.
They've already sunk more than a million into it and are now hoping to pull the plug.
